Historical Note In 1958, Roy White purchased WLEX ( Lexington) radio on a seven-year agreement and operated the station as WBLG ( Bluegrass). WLEX-TV continued to operate a WLEX-FM radio station. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) began conferences on the television application for WBLG. WBLG received a construction permit for a television transmitter in September, 1967, and began transmissions on May 28, 1968. WBLG-TV and -Radio was sold to Star Broadcasting for 1.5 million in 1973. WBLG-Radio was then purchased by Village Communications/The Village Companies. In 1979, WBLG was sold to Wendell Triplett/Triplett Broadcasting Company, Bellefontaine, Ohio, who changed the call letters to WTKC ( Triplett Kentucky Country). At the same time that Village bought WBLG radio, it also bought WLEX-FM from the company that operated WLEX-TV. Those call numbers were changed to WKQQ-FM, Lexington, Kentucky's first album-oriented rock station. Sources: 1. Crawley, Bruce. Personal communication to staff, December 20, 2013. 2.
